Dashboard Vision/Roadmap

The key components of the enterprise-wide dashboard we added with this release – and how they improve ease of use – are summarized below.

  1. Edge Server Node Management – Let’s you monitor multiple Rifidi Edge server nodes across the enterprise to see connection states, properties, sensors and applications.
  2. Sensor Management – Provides an interface to monitor sensors’ state, manage sensors’ properties and dynamically update sensors’ execution.
  3. Rifidi Application Management – Allows you to monitor application states, manage sensor/reader read zones, and update both out-of-the-box business solutions and custom (via SDK) Rifidi sensor/IoT device properties, providing the foundation for a Rifidi Application marketplace.

Introduction

The Web Administration Dashboard enables users to manage, monitor and configure Rifidi Servers, Sensors/Readers and Applications.

Menu section

The menu is a hierarchical tree component, where all the configured servers are listed, and under each server there are three fixed sections:

  1. Sensor Management: Allows call operations related to sensors, such as listing sensors, create a new sensor connection, modify sensor properties, associate sessions to sensors, submit a command on a session
  2. Command Management: Allows create and delete command instances.
  3. App Management: Allows list the applications, start and stop them, modify application properties, group properties. It allows manage readzones, create, modify properties and delete.
